Located in the Behavioral Health Science Center on the LVH-Muhlenberg campus, the Adult center is a 52-bed program offering a full range of services provided by an interdisciplinary treatment team of board certified psychiatrists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, psychiatric nurses, licensed social workers and professional counselors, rehabilitation specialists, a medical doctor and other mental health professionals. Individual, group and family sessions, with a clear focus on education and support, help patients begin putting their lives back on track.
Treatment is focused on stabilization so that care can be safely and effectively provided in an outpatient setting as soon as possible. Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan, relating to the specific issues that need to be addressed to move out of the crisis situation. Discharge planning and arrangement for outpatient support services are a major focus in the plan, and begin immediately upon admission.
